Fired FBI Director James Comey on Thursday said he was “stunned” by President Donald Trump’s request for him to drop the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
“Why didn’t you stop and say, ‘Mr. President, this is wrong, I cannot discuss this with you?'” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked Comey.
“That’s a great question. Maybe if I were stronger, I would have,” Comey said. “I was so stunned by the conversation that I just took it in.”
